TOPIC: Grieving the Holy Spirit

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 4:30-32

Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

MESSAGE

Have you ever considered how some of your attitudes and actions grieve the Holy Spirit? When you were saved, He came to live within you and sealed you as God’s possession. This means you are no longer your own, as you now belong to the Lord and are to live in a manner that reflects Christ.

It’s obvious to us that lying, adultery, and stealing are wrong, but too often we tolerate sinful attitudes and emotions like anger, bitterness, resentment, and an unforgiving spirit. Every area of our life is affected when we refuse to extend to others the pardon Christ so generously granted to us.

Although the pain and injustice of an offense can break our heart, a refusal to forgive denies God the opportunity to redeem the hurt. We want Him to change the offender and make him sorry for what he’s done, but the Lord wants to transform us. A forgiving spirit flows from our new Christ-like nature and enables us to see others through eyes of grace and mercy.

And something else that can increase our willingness to forgive is a familiar principle from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount—to treat others the same way we want them to treat us (Matthew 7:12).

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ecclesiastes 9-12

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: We grieve the Holy Spirit when we harbor anger and refuse to forgive.
